A few weekends ago my friend Laura came to stay with us for the weekend. We didn't have many plans (our husbands were out cutting firewood), so we decided to do some crafts.
A long time ago I had pinned a tutorial on how to make Jane Eyre Shrugs from T-Shirts. The tutorial can be found here. I wasn't sure how they would turn out so we gave it a go. I was pretty happy with the result and it took hardly any time at all.
Looking back at the tutorial it looks like if you use a shirt that is a little more baggy it will have more of the pretty draped effect.
I like the ways ours turned out though, and they were both just shirts that were in my repurpose bin!
Here is Laura modeling her new shrug- isn't she cute!!
The sweater before its "updo" into a shrug.
Here is my tee before.
And after. (sorry about the bad photo!)
The other thought I had was that instead of having to deal with the ribbon tie you could sew the ribbon off and then add a cute brooch or button!
There are a bunch of other variations of this shirt here.
Thanks for stopping by!
I will be sharing with some of these parties!
